Workers are digging up Fleming Way in preparation for the town's new 'bus boulevard'.

Swindon Borough Council has ambitious plans to transform the centre of town. It will close Fleming Way to private traffic and make it a public transport hub, with all bus services running into and across Swindon stopping there.

It will also lower the road and remove the pedestrian underpass and hope it will make that end of the town centre much more attractive to people.

The work will need a government grant of £25m to take place and this has yet to be confirmed.

Before then, BT telephone cables running under the existing road have to be moved.

The lifting of the flagstones taking place at the moment is to allow those cables to be re-routed and is preparatory work ahead of construction of the new road system.
